Notes: Recorded from the front rail of the Fox. There were two one second gaps (@ 5.5 sec. and 7.5 sec.) that I repaired using the soundboard source for this show - which has it's own problems which do not warrant conversion to SHN (yet!)

I've heard this version (of "Thank You Falletin'...") and compared it to later versions, and I have to say that RRFB gets better with age. Not that this is bad, but the more they get to work on it, the more funkier they get it.
The entire jam is awesome, but if you're just starting to get into RRFB, I'd recommend more recent gigs. The older stuff is great for those who are interested in their "roots". Good sound quality, for an earlier show. Good mix of stage and crowd.
BTW: Does anyone have a copy of RRFB shows at the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden in Astoria, Queens, NY? Great little venue which no longer has jam bands, but I hear they used to rock this shed down to the ground! Please post any Bohemian Hall shows, if they're out there......

This show was a top 5 of all time for me. It was the biggest get down I've ever seen at the Fox either. I had seen RRFB once at Starr Hill, in C'ville VA and it was great. So I took my touring buddy to see them at the Fox. We stood right in front of Robert the whole show and boogied. He stopped at one point of the show and shook our hands and one other guy (near the end of the show) for dancing out all the great energy that we did!!! It was truly unbelievable.
By the next show at the Fox, it was so crowded cause everybody caught on quick to what a show RRFB puts on. But this was the one to see IMO.
Met up with Danielle at that store across the street from the Fox. I bought a Falafel, he was getting some Phillie Blunts. I thanked him and we went on our way.

11/16/01 Randolph in Boulder.....WOW!!!!!!
This is the highest energy show I've ever been to. This audience recording is one of my favorites by any band. The crowd come through just enough on the cds to give the show a very warm feel....it makes you feel like you were there. Randolph is very fired up as well. You can tell how much fun he was having up there. I can't listen to these cds and not smile. This recording is a must for anyone who likes Randolph. If you haven't heard this show, you need to.
Now, let's try to find the 3/3/02 Randolph show from the Fox in Boulder.
